Streamlining Industrial Operations

After struggling for a long time at work, I realized that there had to be something else I could do to make my life a little better. I began doing everything I could to improve workflow while preventing injury, and a friend of mine told me about how to use machinery in a more efficient way. I talked with them about how to make some changes, and it was really neat to see how much more efficient the system could run. I wanted to use this website as a launching point for creating a brighter, more interesting workflow in your place of business.

An Automatic Tank Girth Welding Machine Makes Assembling Tanks Easier


Large tanks can't be put in place all in one part. Depending on the size of the tank, what it's being used for, and where it is going, the tank may have to be transported in several pieces with final assembly taking onsite. There are a lot of things that will go into that final assembly, including welding. Any joins in the tank must be tightly sealed, especially if the tank is supposed to hold any kind of liquid. Trying to weld around the entire girth of the tank can be difficult. There are so many reasons why this is true, including the manpower. However, there are ways around it. One of them is to use an automatic tank girth welding machine

Automatic Tank Girth Welding Machine 

These machines are set so that they can hang from the top of the tank, run around the tank on a special shelf, or even run around the bottom of the tank. The machine has a number of working parts that will go into welding the seam. There are rollers which go out in front of the machine to make sure that the seams are ready to be welded and which may lay down flux or other necessary material for the weld. Then the welding head will do all the work to make sure that the weld is done correctly. There are a lot of benefits to using an automatic welding machine like this. 

Frees Up Employees

One benefit to using a welding machine is that it frees up employees to do other things. The machine is doing all that welding work, which will allow your employees to do more complex welds that can't be done by machine. 


The seams that are being welded aren't always at an easy place for your employees to reach and they will have to constantly move around so that they can weld the seam. That can cause a lot of safety risks for your employees. But, the machine doesn't have to worry about having to rig up and move safety gear so that it can move to the next part of the seam, it just automatically follows the seam. 

Placing large tanks isn't always necessary. Sometimes they are built onsite, sometimes they are shipped in and then finished up onsite. Either way, the tank's seams are going to need to be welded, and an automatic tank girth welding machine is the best way to do that.
